California-Nevada Interstate Maglev project is proposing the construction of a 269-mile Maglev train line from Las Vegas, Nevada to Anaheim, California. $45 million was recieved for planning of the first 40 miles between Primm and Las Vegas.

That would be so cool. The way gas prices are here in the west I know I would use it. Nothing like taking the family on a weekend trip to LA without spending 200 dollars on gas. Our country is so behind when it comes to high speed transit. We are way to arrogant of a society to embrace things like this. The almighty automobile will have to soon take a back seat if we are to sevre ties to Middle east oil.
